Wilson: Our Contemporary Theism

“Our contemporary theism is really a pathetic and sorry affair. We want an avuncular figure in the sky, someone to hand out candy when we’re feeling a little blue. But the true God is the Most High; He inhabits glory, and He is the sovereign ruler of it. If invited to approach Him, if we actually understood what an invitation to approach unapproachable Light meant, we would cover our faces, completely abashed.”

– Douglas Wilson, Angels in the Architecture (p. 41)
